Younger Scharenberg shattered for brother Matt's second ACL tear

Jonty Scharenberg training with the Academy in Florida

Jonty Scharenberg training with the Academy in Florida

JONTY Scharenberg walked out of his English exam, opened up his Twitter feed on his phone and was shocked by what he read.

It was late November and his older brother Matt had torn his anterior cruciate ligament and would need a knee reconstruction, his second in two years on Collingwood's list.

"I couldn't believe it," Jonty told "Mum didn't want to tell me before I went into the exam which is fair enough, but I was just shattered for him. I sent him a text straight away but I just couldn't believe it.

"Seeing the hard work he's gone through and for it to happen again is pretty frustrating for him, but I'm sure he'll be able to bounce back."

Scharenberg, 17, hopes to join his older brother at the top level via this year's NAB AFL Draft, having impressed last season for South Australia's under-18 team and even breaking into Glenelg's senior SANFL side.

This week he is training in America with the NAB AFL Academy on their high performance camp in Florida – a trip designed to reflect an AFL club environment – but he already has a strong insight into what can come with being a professional athlete.

Gym Junkies – Players who have gained significant weight while working hard in the gym.
Casualty Ward – Players who have undergone off-season surgery or are on modified programs during the pre-season.
The New Breed – Recruits or underage players who have caught the eye during pre-season training.

Casualty Ward – Midfielder Hayden Jolly underwent ankle surgery before Christmas but has begun running while country star Jack Kenny is sporting a moon boot as a precaution after rolling his ankle at training last week. Luckless defender Pat McCarthy continues to battle an ongoing groin complaint, he has started running but is around 3-4 weeks from joining full training.

The New Breed
– Rising midfield star Jonty Scharenberg has been ‘’flying’’ on the track according to coach Matt Lokan, who added he has added size to his frame to the point he expects the teenager to play regular senior football in 2016. Crafty young forward Corey May has improved his fitness significantly after impressing in the Under-18s last year while former Sturt goalsneak Ziggy Vitkunas has impressed with his ‘’first-class training standards.’’
